bar friday night the bomb was a fake and the man who gave it to him was an undercover fbi agent according to the fbi the alleged attempted bombing was the culmination of months of planning by him during which the agency says he made a list of 29 potential targets in chicago then scatter the targets to see which one would wreak the most devastation but it's a tactic used by the fbi during the investigation that the suspect's attorney said is cause for concern. the u.s. attorney's office argued today that the evidence not only shows that he was the instigator every step along the way and his alleged plan to kill americans but that he also had numerous opportunities to back out. the misguided team of middle eastern descent. durkin says he will continue to request his client be released pending trial i still think we can come up with conditions that will make it every bit as safe for him as at home as it is in kankakee. the next step in the case will be the agreement it will be scheduled for sometime in the next 7-10 days. prosecutors in colorado given up their fight to four the no

the fbi. >> i started to get sick to my stomach. i realized this was a big ripoff going on. >> reporter: from what you could see right there, how big did you think it was? >> i could see there was $775,000 had gone in and out of this account in one month of september. >> in one month? >> one month. >> reporter: what did the fbi then say to you? what plan did they come up with? >> first of all they wanted me to keep my mouth shut. >> reporter: he did just that. for 5 1/2 months, the fbi secretly scoured dixon's finances. all the while the mayor and clerk who tipped him off had to act business as usual. you are coming in here every day, you know what you know. you are looking at her, she must not have had any idea that you knew? >> oh, i don't think she did. i don't think she did. >> reporter: until the morning last april when the fbi came to city hall to pay rita a visit. >> she come wheeling right in this door here. and i said, good morning, rita. she said good morning. and i said three gentlemen would like to talk to you. one agent identified himself with the fbi we've got some questio

a building with a car bomb. the bomb turned out to be a dud and the seller an undercover fbi agent. prosecutors say daoud refused several offers to back out of the bombing plot. daoud's defense lawyer claims his client is just a misguided teenager, and the feds set him up. he'll stay in jail until his arraignment, about a week from now. the former comptroller of dixon illinois is facing a new round of charges. rita crundwell was indicted yesterday on 60 counts of theft... for allegedly embezzling more than 50 million dollars from the city, and using it to support her horse-breeding business. she was already facing a single federal count of wire fraud. she has pleaded not guilty to the federal charge. g-m is recalling more than 400,000 cars to fix a problem that could lead the vehicles to roll... when drivers think they're in park. the cars in question are the chevy malibu, the pontiac g-6 and and the saturn aura. the model years are 2007 through 2010... and the cars have automatic transmissions. g-m says it's aware of four crashes related to the problem but no injuries. the car

of investigation is very different for the fbi then it is for the atf. my basic question is why -- why does atf have one process of investigation and the fbi has a very different one? the scope of the task that you mentioned in your report with atf, there is a regulatory function and the criminal function that overlap at times. there were obvious issues that happened. i will allow you to make a comment on one of those. i have one more issue as well -- the size of the agency and what they were trying to accomplish. as i read 3 report, page 338 there was an interesting comment that alluded to the fact that the atf was over their head. they had too few people, trying to take on this massive task. it looked like they were trying to accomplish something big but did not have the right people. this group of atf agents were in way over their head and should not have been engaged in this. i have one more issue i want to visit on -- i will talk a little bit about the issue. regulatory vs criminal responsibility, and the task given to atf. do you have recommendations on that based on your investigation? >

some million this year. my question is do you believe the cfpb have less accountability then the fbi? >> my understanding is i was not here when the -- was enacted. we should operate on equivalent terms as them. it is true to some extent of the structure. i think it makes sense for us to be on par with others. that would be my sense of it. >> that is a choice we have to make. i have concerns. i want to quickly talk. we have a big somali community in columbia, ohio. these remittances are truly lifelines for those folks. and other folks that are immigrants and trying to help family back home. i am curious, when i read your rules and every the comments from those, it sounds like a closed networks like western union and money gramm will be able to comply with your february deadline. a lot of the wireless services might have real trouble with that. have you been told that and doesn't give you cause for concern? what it tells me is there will be less competition and more expensive costs to these remittances and less access. is it something you are aware of and are you willing to do somethi

, high-ranking member of the f.b.i., director of national intelligence, general clapper and the vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to tell us ostensibly what happened in the tragic death of christopher -- ambassador christopher stevens and three other brave americans. so we gathered down in the secret room, which everybody turns in their phones and blackberries, and we went in and listened to basically a description of america's military disposition in that part of the world, something which certainly does not warrant a super secret briefing. but more importantly than that, when the secretary and the others were asked exactly what happened, what happened here, what caused this tragedy? what was the sequence of events? in fact, it was senators, the ranking member of the intelligence committee, what happened? the answer was, well, that's still an ongoing investigation, and we can't tell you anything. we were supposed to be down there to hear what happened, to hear the administration's version of events of what happened. we were told nothing. we were told absolutely nothing. and
